Isla's Birthday Fundraiser
I am named after my great grandmother, Irene. Many years ago, and at a very young age, her daughter Paula succumbed to Ovarian Cancer. Unfortunately, similar tragedies remain commonplace throughout the world. Right now, here in Canada, thousands of women are living with Ovarian Cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year.
Each of these women, just like Paula, is central to a family. Every one of these women has people who love her. In support of them, and in memory of those that have passed, I am raising funds for my birthday to help fight this terrible disease.
Every dollar raised supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the Canadian charity championing the health and wellbeing of women with ovarian cancer and those at risk for the disease, while advancing research to save lives. Funds will help further scientific progress, advocacy efforts and support programs.
Please support this worthy cause with a generous donation. Together we can help women live fuller, better and longer lives.
